What people say

"Garachico is located in the northwest of the island of Tenerife, is a small town and half of its territory is covered by Canarian pine, volcanic landscape and an ancient cliff that separates the historic center from the hinterland. It also boasts a newly built marina near the historic center, which coexists with the beaches of pebbles and black sand and with small cliffs. It is good to highlight the natural pools of El Caletón, one of the most famous bathing areas, and the imposing rock that rises in front of the coast."
"Garachico is another favorite. This small town on the northern coast is listed as one of "The Most Beautiful Villages in Spain" and for good reason. The town has a delightful historical center."
"A gorgeous village worth visiting on your tour around the island. Not only that but it has fantastic natural pools you can swim in if the sea is calm. "

Mentioned in these guides

Tenerife truly stands out for its diverse panoramic views. From any point on the island you can reach an elevation above the clouds in less than an hour. Visiting its viewpoints is undoubtedly the best way to experience the island's charm. That's why I've decided to focus the guide on highlighting the 7 essential viewpoints 🤩 that should be included in any visit. You'll discover the island one viewpoint at a time. No matter how much time you have or what your interests are, your mission should be to make it to these viewpoints at all costs. Don't miss any of them. After that, you can take some time to relax on the beach or by the hotel pool...😎 The guide also includes: 📣 Essential Information: tips, towns, must-visit spots, local cuisine, top activities and more. 🍽️ 5 authentic 'guachinches' (local restaurants) 🍸 5 bars with stunning views 🍦 The best ice cream spot 🍝 4 places for international food 🍳 8 brunch spots 📍 + 100 pinned places to explore from anywhere on the island And if you still have time and energy, you can explore the list of 17 hidden gems 💎 These are lesser-known and unique places that are worth discovering. Many locals believe that sharing these places will only lead to them getting spoiled and lost forever... I'd like to think that this guide will be in good hands and that visitors will take care of the islands just as well or even better than we do🙏 Note: just click on any location within the guide or map and you'll instantly get directions on your phone's Google Maps app. Make sure to download the Thatch app for a seamless and convenient experience!
